I would give zero stars if I could. They need to see you literally dying to pay attention to you. Have been here for more than 6 hours with mom who has extreme pain and they haven't even had the decency or kindness to check her out yet. On a wall in the room they have a little plaque that says "Our prayer is that you will experience comfort and compassion, hope and healing." there is absolutely no comfort and we see no compassion in making a suffering woman wait more than 6 hours crying in pain while they just walk around laughing. I have absolutely no hope in this horrible hospital and we are not receiving any healing. Wouldn't reccomend to anyone!😠

Arrived before 1am. My one year old son was literally throwing up as we were walking in to the ER. A handful of other patients came in after me. They were attended to faster and discharge. Meanwhile my son's threw up twice in the waiting lobby. As instructed I informed the nurse, who simply continued to make us wait. I am still siting here waiting. After they said 3 more people if I could take a picture of the lobby it would show only my wife, son and myself with one other patient.

I rarely go to ER especially if it is not really emergent. I rather go and visit an urgent care and be evaluated. Unfortunately due to my sudden "Not feeling Good Situation" while in the middle of my errands I went to an urgent care to be assessed. The PA advised me to go to ER to be fully evaluated.I followed the instructions. Went to San Joaquin Community Hospital ER. I told the triage nurse about my scenario She took me inside ER room to be evaluated, ECG done, VS taken , a PA came and assessed me for 5 seconds and boom she's gone. I told them I am experiencing SOB , my chest felt tight ( no pain ) , I feel lightheaded and my hands feel swollen. I even told them I have history of asthma and I already took my rescue inhaler earlier. but I don't feel good all of sudden. I don't know how an ER Physician or nurse gathered the info for my History and Physical Assessment , was not assessed fully that's all I can say. As expected they let me sit in a room behind the nurse station with other patients. Some patients have their IV fluid hanging , being medicated,It is just a waiting game. A nurse came and made a roll call and notifying you what need to be done and etc.Some nurses already giving discharge instructions to other patients on that same room. Finally An ER Doctor came , ask me how I feel, cut me and concluded i ONLY HAVE AN ANXIETY ATTACK. I ask him what was my VS and i was surprised that my BP was High and I ask do you think my sudden High BP t made me feel sick? Because I been noticing that each time my BP high i am experiencing this symptoms and my concern is I am not Hypertensive nor I am not diabetic but I am a COPD patient and with some kidney issues. He firmly responded it is anxiety for my blood works is fine and my ecg is fine and i am still young.He order a med to calm me down. (????) and he will discharge me. A nurse came with a syringe on her hand and I politely asked her what medication is that and She said it is Ativan, I declined and my response was " My chest still feel tight and I still feel lightheaded but my fear ,it may make me feel worst" and she ask me how about a Valium and I told the nurse I did took that medication before for my Pre Med prior an MRA of abdomen and I had a hard time breathing that they need to put me on O2. I will just go home and monitor my BP and if my condition will worsen after this I will go back to ER then. A discharge RN came and she told me that missing instructions in my discharge paper she will come back. 2 CP came and ask me if i can step out of the room and have sit outside for they need to clean the room because I an done..Discharge RN finally found me and give me the discharge instructions that can be easily heard by other patients.So i requested to give me the instructions in a manner that their is a privacy. She said my Diagnosis is Anxiety , is there something going on lately?? Stressors??? I firmly responded If something is bothering me that will act as a stressor for me to have an anxiety attack why would I not address this to my Primary DR. so that he can give me a medication just in case i need one as needed. I asked the nurse what was my VS when I came in here because prior leaving urgent care my VS was fine and she told me about my BP. My response was " if i was being told that my BP was high and during that time i was being vocal my chest feel tight and i feel light headed and if only they rechecked my BP and reassess hour after to see if there was changes, and being fully assessed by a doctor by asking my medical history and Thorough a Physical assessment. A feeling of assurance and a plan of care could have been initiated.The reason why I agree to go to ER as per recommendation because I know something is not normal during that time. and who know's what will happen in between. My case is not life threatening but it was a waste of money , resources and time staying in ER . A proper disposition could have been made if it was being addressed properly.

We have had nothing but good experiences with this hospital. All of the staff, nurses and doctors included have been wonderful, kind and helpful. I took my son in for stomach pain in the middle of the night. We did have to wait but that happens at EVERY hospital ER. Once they got us back to speak to the dr everything moved forward pretty quickly. He was diagnosed with appendicitis and his surgery was scheduled. Each and every one of the people we encountered during our time there was friendly and helpful. After a few bad experiences with Mercy Southwest we have chosen San Joaquin as our go to hospital.

Worst experience. I was told that San Joaquin had the best care in the area, that if I ever had an emergency this was the best place to take care of me. Well I regret coming here. Came into the ER with a fractured foot. Waited in the lobby 3 1/2 hrs before I was seen for my triage, then waited an additional 6 hrs after X-rays were taken for me to be seen by the actual Doctor. My foot was ridiculously swollen and bruised. I do not recommend people coming here for care. Worst care you will receive. I will not be back here in the future. Stay out of there, you will literally die waiting to be seen.

I absolutely HATE SAN JOAQUIN community Hospital. My daughter had an head injury on 3/22 we was sent to SJCH by Kaiser. When we arrived one of the Triage Nurses or whatever the hell his role is (Kevin) was rude and not friendly at all. We were then sent to the back for my daughter to get an Catscann of her head, after the first attempt wasn't successful, the RN and DR recommended that we wait and giver her something to calm her down.. Well the wait was so long that she naturally just fell asleep. Kevin, then wanted us to go back to try again now that she was sleep. On my way back, one of the Nurses, stopped us and made it a point to tell the X-RAY tech, that my daughter didn't take the Benadryl ??? Which, I didn't think it mattered rather or not she did, due to her being sleep. What she did, didn't really matter, her approach and mannerism was very unprofessional.. They talked about patients and is one of the worst hospitals. SJCH Claim they treat their patients with Dignity, where? They're Condescending, disrespectful... And one of the most unprofessional nursing staffs I have ever encountered. I love Kaiser, but hate that they push and represent SJCH .. SJCH, should be ashamed that they say they serve and aim to please God, but none of their staff behavior or characteristics shows it!
